Study Melbourne Live Project Program

Practera is grateful and excited to have been re-appointed by Study Melbourne to extend the innovative LIVE Projects program successfully connecting international students with employers through 2019/20

LIVE Projects is an initiative of the Victorian Government delivered in partnership with education providers and enabled by experiential learning technology company Practera. This initiative offers opportunities for international students to undertake real world business projects for Business, Government and Community organisations. The program commenced in 2017 and has achieved some impressive results with students receiving high quality work-based learning experiences and employers receiving high quality insights from diverse, multinational and multi-disciplinary teams of students.

Impressive results from the first two years

9/10 willingness to recommend to peers

95% believe they have improved their social connections from joining the Live Projects

Work-integrated learning at scale

More than 1000+ International students have worked in teams to undertake the Live Projects 3-week learning experience and delivered projects for businesses, community organisations and Victorian Government agencies.
